Let's make this a Vista Tips & Tricks thread. Has anybody found any good tweaks and such that make Vista run faster or cut down on resource consumption?

Tip: to get rid of that annoying pop up that ask your permission to install something.

Go to control panel

then to user accounts

click Turn User Account Control On or Off

check or uncheck the box then press ok

NO MORE STUPID POP UPS!!!!

i wonder if RtvReco will still work in Vista.
it was originally made to automatically click the Reconnect button due to a lost internet connection... ooo dial-up networking days..
anyway, that program could be set up to automatically click ANY button of any dialogue box the instant it appeared.. sometimes even before it appeared

I do believe if you go to control panel, open security center. On the left side in the column click "Change the way Security Center alerts me", then click on one of the three options you want. I think the last one does it

i always appeare when i'm formally summoned
i "discovered" the balloon thing in the RC1, so hopefully it also works in Vista Final.

ok, reffer to Lobsters guide to disable UAC. now, to disable the balloon:

1. First of all, you need Security Center running... i know that a lot of ppl disables it... which gives those popups too.

2. go into the Security Center (again, tunred on). to the left, you'll see on the menu a thing that says "Change the way Security Center notifies me" or something similar. Click on it.

3. A little window opens up with three options... the important option, and the one to select, is the one labeled as "not recommended", which is something like "Do not notify me of any events (Not Recommended)".

4. Disabling this will disable every single security center pop-up, including the UAC one. the thing is, that you won't get ANY popups from the security center anymore... which im sure you'll be able to live without

5. there you go, you've FULLY disabled the most annoying windows feature yet.
